Kudos to the Sox on winning the first game of the ALDS. The Angels are a great team and so many folks were thinking that the Red Sox would lose the series. Clearly they still could; however, the Red Sox started the series on a high note and created momentum. The pressure is now on the Angels in game 2 since they need to win at least one game at LA. For the Red Sox, they only needed one game in LA and so a loss tonight is not devastating.
I am currently watching game 2 and the Sox are ahead in the 4th inning; it looks to be a tough game regardless; I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
My frustration with these games is that they are on so late that it is hard to stay up and watch the entire thing. I understand that it is on late because of the west coast, but it is bothersome nonetheless. I wonder how this impacts ratings since it affects all viewers in the east. Likewise, when the games come to Fenway, I wonder how the earlier start time will affect ratings.
